“Authentic Turkish cooking for people who are tired of lamb kebabs. Enjoyed homegrown fruits, fres,h salads, and Ravioli”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

I found the cafe next door to my hostel, and went in because of the cute kitties in the garden :) The owner Harun is really friendly and genuine! I have been travelling for over 4 months so I have got quite tired of the touristy food, and was craving for somewhere quiet with nice homecooking food. And in this little cafe, I enjoy all the fresh salads, eggplant kebab, and the most tasty ravioli, while admiring the nice carpets used to decorate the place! Harun puts lots of his effort into the cafe, making the furniture and cooking the food for guests. Here I had an encounter with a local Turkish person, just to get a glance of life in Goreme.

“A special place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

In Goreme you have a wide range of stablishments, but sometimes you feel as if you were in a theme Park. However Omurca Art Cave is an authentic personal special place.

In Omurca Art Cave Cafe we found good food (you have to taste the ravioli of Harun!!), conversation, art and some autenthic pretty things to buy. If you only want food, a bit of conversation with a çay in yout hand, or find a different gift, we recommend to visit this place.
